57. Experience the poem

Combine nature and culture on this unique poetic hiking or cycling trip. In the course of an hour and a half you walk past seven poetry tables located at the most beautiful areas of downtown Valkenswaard. This route is a tribute to the Valkenswaard poet Frans Hoppenbrouwers. For more poetic inspiration you are invited to try the cycling route that passes no less than 26 poem tables. In addition to the work of Frans Hoppenbrouwers, each table also contains a second poem written by a Valkenswaard pupil.
